    Immortality?

    No if's No but's I want to live forever
  4. Dear Dave Thanks for the reply, I had a thought that might be the case. Regards Gauss
  5. Four points to consider First point: The proof simply states that x = 0.999... and the method used is smiliar to the one that is used to prove otherwise. The calculations are exact. Second point: Take another example: x = 3 Eq(1) 10*x = 10 * 3 Eq(2) Eq(2) - Eq(1) 9*x = 27 [math]x = \frac {27}{9}[/math] x = 3 Third Point: There is no reason whatsoever to use the formula for the sum of an infinite sequence in this case. I know the exact sum of: [math]S = \frac{9}{10} + \frac{9}{10^2} + \frac{9}{10^3} + ...[/math] Its [math]S = 0.\bar9[/math] However I would use the sum of an infinite sequence in the following case: [math]S_n = \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{8} + ... + \frac{1}{2^n} [/math] Obviously, as [math]n \rightarrow \infty \mbox{\, } S_n \rightarrow 1[/math] Fourth point: This is the case for 2/9 x = 0.222... Eq (1) 10 * x = 10 * 0.222... x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x = 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... Eq(2) Eq (2) - Eq (1) x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x = 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... + 0.222... Eq(2) Since addition or multiplication is normally carried out from Right to Left and since this is an area of contention of what occurs or happens after the repeating dots (ellipses) then addition or multiplication in this instance is carried out from Left to Right. 9*x = 1.999... [math]x = \frac {1.999...}{9}[/math] [math]x = 0.222...}[/math]
  6. Dear Dave I have tried numerous times to use the latex code for Matrix and Align equations. When I use the command for matrix I get: [math]\begin{matrix} w & x \\ annoyed & z \end{matrix}[/math] and for align: [math]\begin{align} w & x \\ annoyed & z \end{align}[/math] As you can see the ampersand persists. I have read a few 'latex' manuals and tried various code combinations. Could you or someone else be able to provide some information to overcome this problem. Regards Gauss
  7. x = 0.999... Eq (1) 10 * x = 10 * 0.999... x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x = 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... Eq(2) Eq (2) - Eq (1) x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x+x = 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... + 0.999... Since addition or multiplication is normally carried out from Right to Left and since this is an area of contention of what occurs or happens after the repeating dots (ellipses) then addition or multiplication in this instance is carried out from Left to Right. 9*x = 8.999... [math] x = \frac {8.999...}{9} [/math] [math] x = 0.999... [/math]
  8. [math]0.\overline{0}1[/math] is another way of stating or trying to represent [math]\lim_{n\to\infty}10^{-n}[/math]. Which is just an identity equation or equivalence statement. Dave's statement' date=' stated [math']0.\overline{0}1[/math] = 0
  9. This equation is not correct. All you have done is constructed a statement and stated the LHS equals the RHS.
  10. [math]1.\bar 0[/math] does not equal [math]0.\bar 9[/math] they are two distinct different numbers.
  11. 1.\bar0 does not equal 0.\bar9 they are two distinct different numbers.
